EdT Poison, while a lot more floral, is still a class act that I think guys who wear things like Black Orchid could wear comfortably.
Hypnotic and Midnight, though not my "thing", don't really have anything typically gendered about them. Hypnotic is an almondy gourmand and Midnight is kind of a swampy rose-patchouli.
Tendre is pretty hard to find, but is kind of a sharp green-floral. Men can wear this but your mileage may vary - I'm bad at judging this one, as I really don't like it.
Modern Poison EdT is great but shifted to something a little lighter, brighter, fruitier and more floral. I'd wear it but I can see some guys having issues with it.
I don't think most men would enjoy Pure. It's kind of a delicate floral version of the original. Bridal flowers white flowers vibe here.
